    I saw this on another board and thought there might be some more ideas from the folks here. Did you every celebrate your state's birthday? We are going to have a Happy Birthday Pennsylvania party on December 12. The date it became a state. Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    That sounds like a great idea! I've never had a birthday party but when I taught 4th graders, I taught them how to square dance. The legislature has tried several times to make it the official folk dance of the state but I don't know if it ever actually passed. You could try a polka as well. There is one kind where boys and girls wouldn't have to touch each other.:eek:
    You could have party food represented by crops (like corn and of course chocolate). Love the idea!
